Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it? Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. (Amos 3:6-7)
We hear 'Trump', and we associate it with 'Trumpet', which is the likely origin of the surname which was given to a Trumpeter or Drummer in the Army. The trumpet in the Bible speaks also of a call to war as Amos points out. Amos also says that when the trumpet of war is blown, Yahweh has done it. We are told that what is done is revealed to his servants.
So we have a great world shaking event regarding Jerusalem on 14 May 2018, on a 70 year anniversary and we weren't told in the Bible?
But yet it is noted by so many (we don't need to quote) that Evangelical Christians voted for Trump because they saw he would do God's will. Some say Trump is like Cyrus. Foxnews
What caused them to understand this from the Bible? How did they know that there would be a time to Favour Zion (Psalm 102:13), and a time when Jerusalem is a 'Burdensome Stone' (Zech 12:2-3) and that in Trump there was a leader who would do this, because he was not a politician?
There seems some general understanding from multiple Messianic and Evangelical pastors that, at the end times, there would be a time of peace on the mountains due to Ezekiel 38.
After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. (Ezekiel 38:8)
There is also a strong feeling that America required blessing due to blessing Israel. There is a group, Christians United for Isarel (CUFI) numbering millions, and a number of Messianic Jews, not least being Jonathan Cahn, who are best selling authors. The role of Obama was to cause Evangelicals to see a curse and to fear the curse due to the pressure put on Israel to prevent them building, or achieving good. Faithwire.com reports “A recent LifeWay poll found that some 80 percent of evangelicals believed that the creation of Israel in 1948 was a fulfillment of biblical prophecy that usher forth the return of Christ.”
The embassy move was not achieved in a day. It was put into US law in 1995, 47 years after 1948. The Jerusalem Embassy Act came by miracle. It so happened that in 1994 there was a mid term Republican Revolution with a staggering 54 seats gained. The Act became law (Senate 93-3, House 374-37) without a presidential signature on November 8, 1995. The president of 1995 was Bill Clinton. The Jerusalem Embassy Act states
The Congress makes the following findings:
(1) Each sovereign nation, under international law and custom, may designate its own capital.
(2) Since 1950, the city of Jerusalem has been the capital of the State of Israel.
(3) The city of Jerusalem is the seat of Israel's President, Parliament, and Supreme Court, and the site of numerous government ministries and social and cultural institutions.
(4) The city of Jerusalem is the spiritual center of Judaism, and is also considered a holy city by the members of other religious faiths.
(5) From 1948-1967, Jerusalem was a divided city and Israeli citizens of all faiths as well as Jewish citizens of all states were denied access to holy sites in the area controlled by Jordan.
(6) In 1967, the city of Jerusalem was reunited during the conflict known as the Six Day War.
(7) Since 1967, Jerusalem has been a united city administered by Israel, and persons of all religious faiths have been guaranteed full access to holy sites within the city.
(8) This year marks the 28th consecutive year that Jerusalem has been administered as a unified city in which the rights of all faiths have been respected and protected.
(9) In 1990, the Congress unanimously adopted Senate Concurrent Resolution 106, which declares that the Congress “strongly believes that Jerusalem must remain an undivided city in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected''.
(10) In 1992, the United States Senate and House of Representatives unanimously adopted Senate Concurrent Resolution 113 of the One Hundred Second Congress to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, and reaffirming congressional sentiment that Jerusalem must remain an undivided city.
(11) The September 13, 1993, Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements lays out a timetable for the resolution of ``final status'' issues, including Jerusalem.
(12) The Agreement on the Gaza Strip and the Jericho Area was signed May 4, 1994, beginning the five-year transitional period laid out in the Declaration of Principles.
(13) In March of 1995, 93 members of the United States Senate signed a letter to Secretary of State Warren Christopher encouraging ``planning to begin now'' for relocation of the United States Embassy to the city of Jerusalem.
(14) In June of 1993, 257 members of the United States House of Representatives signed a letter to the Secretary of State Warren Christopher stating that the relocation of the United States Embassy to Jerusalem ``should take place no later than . . 1999''.
(15) The United States maintains its embassy in the functioning capital of every country except in the case of our democratic friend and strategic ally, the State of Israel.
(16) The United States conducts official meetings and other business in the city of Jerusalem in de facto recognition of its status as the capital of Israel.
(17) In 1996, the State of Israel will celebrate the 3,000th anniversary of the Jewish presence in Jerusalem since King David's entry.
SEC. 3. TIMETABLE.
(a) Statement of the Policy of the United States.--
(1) Jerusalem should remain an undivided city in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected;
(2) Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel; and
(3) the United States Embassy in Israel should be established in Jerusalem no later than May 31, 1999.
Many talk about international law (whatever that is), but here we have the US law that states “Jerusalem must remain an undivided city.” Why wasn't it enacted in 1992 as was noted, the 25th anniversary of 1967? But also why not in 1999 as the Act required? Bill Clinton was president in 1999. He was not given the honour, as it was not in his heart. He was not the man. In 1999 Trump is on record in the New York Post (July 12) as saying he didn't like to run for President, because he'd be controversial due to his track record with women. Why not last year? Time. It was not time.
It was written,
For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days. (Hosea 3:4-5)
We propose in our article here that the 'many years' is 70.
The end of the 70 years was to be heralded to the nations with a Trump, to underline it so that nobody could ignore it; the choosing of the Inheritance of Israel.
A Psalm for the sons of Korah. O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph. For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth. He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah. God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness. The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted. (Psalm 47:1-9)
But there is more. There is a sequence of events predicted in Isaiah 18. We explore here who the land of woe of the shadowing wings of Isaiah 18 is, and discover it is the USA.
Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia: That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!
All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains;
and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.
For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest. (Isaiah 18:1-4)
The land of the place of Global Ambassadors is New York. The reed boats of the modern world, those of Thor Heyerdahl in 1970 and 1978, famously carried the UN flag (see picture of the RA II 1970), so we would know who this is speaking of. It is there, in the halls of the messengers of the nations, in New York that they discussed and voted on the fate of the 'terrible people' the Jewish people then meted out and trodden down, who the Rivers of nations, most lastly the Ottoman Empire, had spoiled: and had suffered the Peel Commission of 1937: and there Israel was 're-born' as a nation among nations.
Trump and others note how that in authorising the Embassy move he recognised Israel's sovereign right to their capital on the 7oth anniversary of the US being the first to recognise Israel.
Now look what is next in Isaiah 18. There is a stop after the woe. Then we are told to look and see when Yahweh Elohim lifts by miracle a witness, a sign, not in Tel Aviv, not in Jezreel, not in Galilee but on the Mountains of Israel. Have a look at a map.
In the 1948 war Israel suffered a defeat that took from them all the mountains. Jordan had invaded and illegally occupied Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria expelling all Jews. For 19 long years they mourned and learnt to desire their Promised inheritance of the Mountains, including the old city of Jerusalem. 19 years is precisely the lapse of time when Judah went back under Ezra and Nehemiah to the end of Jeremiah's 70 years. The ensign of Isaiah 18 was not seen on the Mountains of Israel until 1967, in an impossible Miracle.
Isaiah 18 speaks of an Ensign on the mountains. The nation of Israel from 1967 was a witness on the mountains of their historic heartland. Ensign in both English and Hebrew means a flag or signal. On the 14th May 70 years after David ben Gurion proclaimed the Nation State of Israel to the hour, the US brings their embassy flag, as a leader of nations, from the coast to the mountains to place it on a mountain overlooking Zion, presenting the flags to begin the ceremony of dedication. Before the flags witnesses another David, David Melech Freidman Beloved King Peacman who speaks of King David making Jerusalem the capital of Israel and the ideal of the New Jerusalem. Benjamin Netayahu the Son of the Right hand Gift of Yah proclaims ‘I will return to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth.'(Zechariah 8:3) Then to end John Hagee the Grace of Yah son of Adam proclaims “Jerusalem is where Messiah will come and establish a kingdom that will never end.” What a ensign! Who is the Beloved King Peaceman, son of the Right Hand gift of Yah, the gracious son of Adam? Did we see it?
Then the next thing is: take note - Isaiah writes “and” which means “the next thing is” when Yahweh Elohim blows a Trump-et!
This also is part of the call to arms. But see where the Trumpet is to be blown!
Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; (Joel 2:1)
The year of freedom of the Jubilee was announced with a shofar, a ram's horn trumpet (Leviticus 25:8). All that year is the year of freedom. In the Bible the Jubilee is the year after the 7th of a pattern of 7 years, where the 7th is as year of rest and release. Thus the Jubilee is both an 8th year and a 1st year. It is when people return to their land.
In the year 1917 Land was given to the Jews through the Balfour declaration, precisely at the end of a Sabbath (Shmita year or release) and the beginning of a first year. Possibly this was the Jubilee year. Fifty years later in 1967 there was a process begun at the end of the 7th year of release, from late 1966 of restoration to Jews of their inheritance of Jerusalem and Mountains finally occurring within in the 1st year of Freedom in 1967 (Likely a 2nd Jubilee year). The world withheld the recognition of Jewish Sovereignty over Jerusalem until Dec 6, 2017, when recognition was given by the world superpower. In the year of Jubilee the Trumpet sounds, Trump – the man who blows the trumpet. Rosh Hashanah 2015 ended a 7th Shmita year on 15 September. Trump began his 2 year Presidential run on June 16, 2015 in a Shmita (7th year of release). We count Jubilees as 50 years, the Jubilee of the Bible is the year after a seventh Shmita year. Curiously that date 15 Sept 2015 featured articles about the Republican inability to scuttle the Obama-Iran nuclear deal. It was the date of the 2nd Republican primary debate, where Trump dominated but Ted Cruz pledged, “the American embassy in Israel will be in Jerusalem.” It wasn't until APAIC March 21, 2016 that Trump pledges “We will move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem.” Friedman and Greenblatt in March 2016 became officially advisors to Donald Trump.
But on October 8, 2015 multiple Jewish news sites have a story that note a September 28 CNN story that a Messianic Jew blesses Trump. Times of Israel notes it was the first day of Sukkot. Sukkot is about dwellings, and this is in the pattern the Jubilee year of Freedom. One source notes that the Rabbi Kirt Schneider rebuked Trump saying “unless you use more wisdom, you’re not going to win this election” and gave advice, yet came away amazed he had been heard and respected. That first year of the 7 year cycle ends Sunday 2 October 2016. That day Politico slams Trump's campaign as anti Semitic (an article written from a Democrat perspective which also notes that there is a divide in Jews between those for 'civil rights' and those who are Zionists), and that week after is considered Trump's worst, where the Access Hollywood tape was revealed, leading to the 2nd debate. In fact it seems that the pattern of 2 previous 50th years in the first year (Sept2015-Oct 2016) after the Shmita 7th year of release(Sept2014-Sept2015) this time delivers nothing in terms of Israel's possession of the land. On Dec 23, 2016 choosing not to veto, Obama lets anti-settlement resolution pass at UN calling for a halt to all Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. This comes at the end of first year in the cycle 2015-16 where there was the most housing 'starts' on the Mountains of Israel since 2000.
There seems no significant change all that 2015-2016 year. All that year Jewish settlement on the mountains was being condemned. Worse, from September 2015 lasting into the first half of 2016, there occurred the "Wave of Terror" or "Intifada of the Individuals". Trump against odds by miracle becomes president in a 2nd year of the 7 year cycle (November 9, 2016 election, office January 20, 2017). Then it is not until the beginning of the 3rd year of the cycle that Trump announces he is fulfilling his word in moving the Embassy. The US Embassy opening in Jerusalem is in the 3rd year 'midst of the week'. Curiously
Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. (Hosea 6:1-2)
Yet the era perfectly fits in a greater 70 years pattern! (see article Times Appointed). 14 May1948 was also in the Midst of the 7 year cycle (or 'week') and fits Hosea's Prophecy. 70 years is exactly10 cycles of 7 years. The significance of the Midst of the week arriving with the life-span of a human anniversary of the resurrection of the Nation, may also be considered. At the end of a (typical) lifespan we all require resurrection. Daniel 9:27 notes the midst of the week associated with the desolations, and Y'shua died in Midst of the week. At that Embassy opening, in the midst of the 7 year week, it is prayed “Jerusalem is where Messiah will come and establish a kingdom that will never end.”
I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. (Isaiah 62:6-7)
The role of 70 years is noted in Daniel.
In the first year of his (Darius) reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. (Daniel 9:2)
Zechariah speaks of the end of 70 years as a time of comfort to Zion.
The man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are they whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth. And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest. Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years? And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me with good words and comfortable words. So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy. And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction. Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem. Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem. (Zecariah 1:10-17)
We would expect that many in Israel may ponder and think on the Miraculous nature of the events, due to the level of international protest making this evident.
Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children,..let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people. (Joel 2:14-18)
We are told there will be a time of favour to the Mountains of Israel
It shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the LORD. (Jeremiah 31:28)
Jeremiah 4 speaks 3 times of blowing the trumpet, calling to repentance before the Northern Invader comes. We know from Ezekiel 38 that there is yet to be another Northern invader, because many Jews still seek human peace, not God's peace.
If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove. And thou shalt swear, The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory. For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns. Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings. Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye the trumpet in the land: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defenced cities. Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction. (Jeremiah 4:1-6)
At a time when Israel faced the threat of Invasion the people are urged to trust in their God.
I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. (Jer 4:19)
How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet? (Jeremiah 4:21)
The question is who has seen the ensign, who hears the Trumpet? Who notes the work of Yahweh Elohim in all these events as the Despised leader of the US challenges the idolatrous 'sacred' political correctness of the European-led nations?
What response is needed?
For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God. For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. (Jeremiah 31:6-7)
Ezekiel is told,
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; (Ezekiel 33:2-6)
Are the servants ready? Have we heard and seen the sign of the Trump-et spoken of in Isaiah 18 ?
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. (Rev 1:10-11)
Just as Isaiah 18 details, Y'shua re-iterates the steps.
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (Mat 24:30-31)
First the sign, the birth of the nation (occurring in the 'Midst of the Week' )followed by the ensign on the mountain of Israel (in a year of Jubilee) and the release of Jerusalem from Gentile rule, then shall there be 'mourning' when they see the son of man coming. Because the Trumpet has sounded.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1Corinthians 15:51-52)
But there's more in terms of Timing! Not just the 70 years
Them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia: To fulfil the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfil threescore and ten years. Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth hath the LORD God of heaven given me; and he hath charged me to build him an house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? The LORD his God be with him, and let him go up. (2 Chronicles 36:20-23)
In 2013 I found these times for the 2 hands of the 1260 years of Daniel was shown in the 3rd year of Cyrus (536BC), and suggested tentatively that 2016 would be a victory over Grecia, in context, as you can see, the Grecia from which came the Little horn of the papacy and the holy Roman Empire. 2016 was the year of Brexit, a huge blow to the reviving holy Roman Empire. 2016 was also the year where, then candidate, Trump on Feb 18 had a public twitter spat with the pope, which clearly showed what Trump thought of him. Trump's policies took on the papacy humanistic agenda on every level. When Trump won there was none more dismayed than the pope. When they met May 24, 2017 it is reported by the Guardian “'Pope looks glum', the Independent called it 'frosty' and Haaretz said it was cooling of the ongoing 'holy war'. The pope had backtracked and at least one other observer noted the papacy was targeting Trump but Trump was refusing to take the bait. Trump is on record as saying to the pope on May 14, 2017 “call on me if you need help” which would have been galling to one whose intrigues are more about being the 'helper' (interfering) than not. To add to detail Sean Spicer, then spokesman, a dedicated catholic was prevented by Trump from seeing the pope. He was replaced by Sarah Elizabeth Huckabee Sanders, a Baptist evangelical born in a place named 'Hope' in Arkansas.
The 2300 years of Daniel 8
Daniel is shown a vision of a ram and a goat with a horn that becomes 4 horns. Then from one of those 4 horns,came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land (Israel)
We see that a 2300 year era from when Rome emerges from Greece ends in 2017. This was a hugely significant event in the rise of the little horn of Rome, out of which comes Modern Europe. There is none more shocked that Europe when pro-British anti-European Trump wins the presidency in November 8, 2016, especially as Nigel Farage is seen with him, taking power January 20, 2017.
One thing we may note is the re-occurring mention of Cyrus. Cyrus is very remarkable as before he was born he was named, and it was written of him,
Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. (Isa 45:1-7)
The world 'anointed' is Messiah! Note this 'messiah' is NOT a good or righteous person, they do not know Yahweh! The Cyrus of history is remarkable for ending a 70 year era of captivity, and making a decree to return and Build. It is also known that he was an idolater. Yet it is written he was to glorify Yahweh's name!
Many American evangelicals think Trump is a new Cyrus, the Jews of the Temple Institute released a coin showing Trump as the new Cyrus, we have eras of time that begin with Cyrus, and then we have something very curious indeed. Just like Cyrus he makes a proclamation about Jerusalem in the 1st year of his 'reign': coming to power on January 20 2917 and making the proclamation December 6, 2017 (2 Chron 36:22, Ezra 1:1)
The 7 times of the rule by basest of men, and the decree of the Watchers then marks a new Cyrus type.
Using solar years it is 7 times (365.5) from when Cyrus takes Babylon to Mid April 2014. Curiously the BBC identifies Mid 2014 as when Trump first clearly pitched for the White house. .. in Dubai! Noting on 19 Jan 2017 that it was two and half years ago,
When Donald Trump agreed to meet BBC reporter Mark Lobel on one of his golf courses in the middle of the Dubai desert in 2014, was he already planning to run for president? Two months earlier, he had tweeted: "While I won't be running for Governor of New York State, a race I would have won, I have much bigger plans in mind - stay tuned, will happen!" He trademarked his campaign slogan, Make America Great Again, after Mitt Romney lost the 2012 election to Barack Obama. bbc
April 2014 is also when the so called 'peace process' came totally unstuck. There was a terrorist murder of a family on the eve of Passover April 14, and the PA did not denounce it. A rocket attack on Israel from Gaza followed on April 29 ramping up on July 8, which led to the Gaza war which ended with an Egypt brokered cease fire 26 Aug 2014. The US congress that year fast tracked and sought shared rights to the Iron Dome.
The diagram above (from 2013) shows 2016 as a date for the end of Rome's Rule. 2016 was indeed significant in terms of Rome's rule, as by year's end after 8 Nov 2016 Trump's team was already stamping it's mark on American foreign policy. By 20 January 2017 Greco-Rome's power to influence American Foreign Policy, and therefore global policy over Jerusalem had practically ended. In a remarkable line up of staff, even the catholic Mike Pence is a committed Bible reading evangelical lover of Israel. Many Jewish commentators find it remarkable, as Israel has never before been supported in this way. They name a soccer team after Trump!
The 50 years Jubilee this time was in preparation for a greater 70 years. The US Embassy opens on the very hour of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Israel with 50 staff, 5 days before Shavout or Pentecost (50) the counting of 50 days.
How do we know the times of the nations are up? It has never in the history of the world been proclaimed from Jerusalem by the representative of a government, let alone one officially opening an Embassy, that Messiah will come and establish a kingdom that will never end!
"We thank you, O Lord, for President Donald Trump's courage in acknowledging to the world a truth that was established 3,000 years ago, that Jerusalem is and always shall be the eternal capital of the Jewish people," said John Hagee. Israel has become "the lone torch of freedom in the Middle East" because of God's "everlasting love for the Jewish people." “Jerusalem is the city of God, Jerusalem is the heartbeat of Israel, Jerusalem is where Abraham placed his son on the altar,” he continued. “Jerusalem is where Messiah will come and establish a kingdom that will never end.”
"Let the word go forth from Jerusalem today that Israel lives. Let every Islamic terrorist hear this message: Israel lives!"
